ABSOLUT Fringe 2012 | Week One Highlights
Now that we're a week into ABSOLUT Fringe 2012, and thoroughly loving every bit of it, we thought we'd share our favourite things that we've loved about the Fringe in the last seven days. From hysterical laughing that resulted in loss of bodily control to shoe-swapping antics and general awe at the amazing creative talents on show, ABSOLUT Fringe 2012 has been an absolut blast and we can't wait to see what week two has in store for us. Make sure to catch up on all our reviews so far, all the freshest photos of the festival in action, and get your tickets to some of the hottest shows in town next week right here.
"Fringe is a Dublin gem, the performances are beautifully human and very well done and you have to take part - if your not in - you can't win! #amazeballs" - Catherine Egan
"I swapped shoes with "Circa Still, Rupture Now" actor Paul Donnelly and then he recreated some iconic photos with them. So I suppose you could say we literally saw what it was like to be in each others shoes." - Brendan O'Rourke
"All Hell Lay Beneath? Lies! All heaven Lay Beneath is surely a more apt title." - Karen Connell
"Everything about the festival is open and welcoming, from the promoters to the performers and theatre staff, loving every bit." - Aoife Ryan
"Bypass at Block T was incredible! Really inventive use of an unusual space, the audience get to explore the whole set and even the relative remoteness of the location feeds into the theme of the show. Excellent." - Zara Ni Dhubhdaigh
"Over-heard three glasses of vino into A Wine Goose Chase: "No wait, I thought you were driving...?"" - Sinead Finegan
"Fringe highlight so far: Laughing so hard I farted at Paula O'Reilly's face during the gymnastic sequence in Straight To DVD" - Karl Watson
"Accidentally making the largest sniff in the beat between the end of The Life and Sort of Death of Eric Argyle and the beginning of the rapturous applause, only for the lights to go up and see the rest of the audience wiping their tears away and sniffling too." - David O'Shaughnessy
"Seeing White Rabbit, Red Rabbit resulted in my ending up playing a bunny rabbit on stage and climbing a ladder to fight with my friend’s boyfriend over an imaginary carrot while Stephen Rea scolded me for being a bold bunny." - Sarah Murphy
ABSOLUT Fringe 2012 is running until September 23rd, and you can find all the shows and book your tickets over at fringefest.com, via phone on 1850 FRINGE (374 643) or in person at the festival Box Office at Filmbase, Curved St., Temple Bar, Dublin 2.
